Pros: Beautiful land on a small hilltop overlooking Lake Waco
Great variety of holes, mostly wooded with a few open
Course layout takes advantage of elevation changes very well
Holes spaced nice distance apart so flow is very quick & easy
Nice course map at hole #1 tee
Concrete tee pads, hole signs with hole number & length
New restroom building near entrance gate
City park that is well maintained
Cons: Course is 25 years old now, showing its age a little
Good players with a big arm might think course is too short, only a few holes that you can really 'let one fly'
Other Thoughts: Course is actually located in Lakeside Park (not Woodway Park), it's the last right turn off the long entry road (called Estates Dr)
**Not sure if it can be officially changed but to be accurate the course name should be Lakeside Park located in Woodway TX.

Pros: -- Elevation changes abound. 14 of the 18 holes have significant elevation change. Two of the four that don't have elevation in play have water. You have to think carefully on most tee pads about how you want to attack the hole.
-- Sturdy reflective tee pad markers with very large numbers make navigation easy. You can also hang a shoulder bag on them.
-- Very nice park with beautiful scenery.
-- Drinking water fountain
-- Big course map near No. 1 tee pad (at the top of the hill near the pavilion).
-- Port-o-potty on site.
Cons: -- Baskets could use some repair or replacement. Plus, there are at least three different types of baskets. Some have single chains and don't catch very well and some are leaning.
-- Tee pads are concrete, but most are uneven. Some are broken and in need of repair.
-- Tee signs only have the hole number. You can see the basket, so you don't really need a map, but having the distance would be helpful.
-- Most of the holes (13 of 18) are packed into the area surrounded by the road, making it very compact and bringing crowding issues into play. The pavilion seems very popular. During two rounds, there were two different groups using it, and frequently those folks were in the way, especially on No. 1. However, folks were also in the way on the final holes by the lake, and a mother and small child walked from the lake past the basket on the way to the pavilion while we were trying to throw our approach shots.
-- Trees provide obstacles for discs, but don't do much to block the wind. They also provide limited shade, so the summer months can be very hot.
Other Thoughts: -- Lots of police security. Could be a pro, but it could be a con if you want to enjoy an adult beverage.
-- No. 1 starts near the pavilion on top of the hill and throws away from the lake. After 2, you cross the road to the left to play Nos. 3-4. Cross back to play 5-14. No. 15 throws across the road toward the lake.
-- A lot of the holes are on the short side (especially for those with big arms), but elevation, out of bounds, trees and water provide plenty of challenges. Also, some holes give the big-arm players options for going over the trees in search of birdie opportunities. Nine of the holes are 200-300 feet and nine are longer than 300 feet; no holes are 400 feet.
-- No. 17 is a different hole than originally designed. Because of erosion, the basket is now about 3 feet from a 6-8 foot drop-off to the lake. That basket was probably 15-20 feet from the drop-off when I first played the course 10-12 years ago. My approach shot in round two hit the side of the bank and ended up in the water. One of my playing partners threw his drive and his approach shot into the water.
-- Between the uneven tee pads, irregular baskets and tight spacing, you would decide this isn't much of a course. But you would be overlooking its charm. I did not like this course the first time I played it; now I might be falling in love.

Pros: Lots of elevation changes and walking up and down
Good view of lake
Cons: Tee signs just have numbers wish they had distance and more info
Other Thoughts: If they updated the signs it would help
Also wish they used the woods a little but too late for that

Pros: +concrete tee pads
+park map at start
+beautiful view, well taken care of park
+not crowded or busy
+can hang DG bag on tee signs (a plus in my book)
+good use of elevation, trees, and lake
Cons: -baskets could use some up keep (but Ive seen worse)
-several short holes makes for easy birdies
-the short holes feel a bit repetitive
-fairly open off of the lake so it can be windy (it was crazy windy when I played)
Other Thoughts: not an overly challenging course but I enjoyed the pit stop on my way home from camping. It was very peaceful park with a few people coming and going on the memorial day holiday but it was not busy at all. during the hour or so it took me to play a full 18 there was one other couple on the course.

TIP1: take a picture of the map at hole 1 on your phone before playing for the first time. due to size constraints the layout can be confusing.

TIP2: hole number one is at the top of the hill in the middle of the park near the pavilion. if you park on the lake-ward side its a shorter walk to hole 1

I would recommend playing here but the locals might have different recommendations.

  Wicked course

Pros: Beautiful! Many signature holes and a couple of ace runs. the front nine has lots of shade.
Cons: Lay out is a little confusing, but if you have a map you'll be aight.
Other Thoughts: All around this is an amazing course, it defiantly doesn't have the rating it deserves. If your passing through Waco to play Circle C Metro in Austin, defiantly make a pit stop for this one!

Pros: *Sturdy reflective tee pad markers. You can hang a shoulder bag on them.
*Concrete tees
*Nice park
*Drinking water fountain
*Lots of police security
*Good parking
*Big course map at tee pad #1
Cons: *Uneven tee pads that get muddy from run off
*Baskets could use some repair or replacement
Other Thoughts: This course is 18 baskets in a tight layout that makes great use of the space and terrain.

Sure, the tee pads are uneven and so are the baskets. The baskets are also mostly one chain type. Put it all together and it somehow works to make this course a special kind of charming.

Also, it had rained pretty good on Saturday. By Tuesday, the place was fairly dry. No standing water and not a lot of mud. It's grassy.

  Quick Update From a Local

Pros: Plans are underway to update the facilities out there. Right now there is a Port-o-John in the parking lot and more permanent structures are on the way. All the broken or stolen baskets have been replaced, and some of the deadfall has been cleaned up from the wooded areas. Also, in the past the course wasn't mowed regularly but they keep the grass pretty low now.
Cons: Even though some of the baskets have been replaced, most of them are still in rough conditions. I think Hole #2's basket sits about two feet off the ground. Most of the baskets still have the six-inch chastity belts that are vexing for long putts. Some of the tee boxes are still a little off as well.
Other Thoughts: Woodway cops are probably worse than anything you've heard about them, but that doesn't stop a lot of players from bringing along a six pack. The cops really just care about speeders, so be careful on the way in and out. There isn't a lot of shade and only one water fountain so be sure to plan accordingly. The entire OB area opposite the lake is ringed with Poison Ivy- keep that in mind when looking for stray discs. And look out for the children on the playground. The last time I was out there I lost my driver in the wind and nearly killed one.

 Needs a basket upgrade

Nice views and nice elevation/hills on this course. In general big-arm players need not apply; this course rewards accurate players with a buffet of birdies. There are only two long holes here where added distance is of value. Baskets placed on hillsides and below trees demand accurate lines be hit to score well. Wind coming off the lake usually adds a significant challenge. Concrete tee boxes are appreciated here. Tee signs are visible and marked with hole numbers but lack distances. The course flows well and you can navigate pretty easily without a map.
A rare type of basket here: single chain DISCatchers. No restrooms on site. Could use a few longer holes to add more balance. Bad tee shots will typically be recoverable with a decent upshot to save your '3'.
Other Thoughts:
Woodway is a pretty average course in the grand scheme of disc golf, nothing that you'll really love and nothing that will keep you from coming back. Don't be fooled by the "multiple tee" listing here: only two holes actually have two pads. We were warned that the local traffic authorities are strict around here so beware.

Pros: Very quiet, not many people go here. Very little traffic on course. Well maintained. Variety of shots.
Cons: little elevation changes. Wind from lake can be strong.
Other Thoughts: My favorite course so far mostly because it is well layed out, has good tees and baskets, and very few people.

Pros: Great location using elevation, OB, tunnels, and wind. This is a great course to work on your shots as most holes allow a wide variety of shots.
Well designed to use the multiple parking locations. Easy to start at 6+ holes. Park at the main parking and you will pass your car twice before you reach 13.

Big map at top of hill by hole 1. Open and beginner friendly, hole 7 and 17 two tee's.
Cons: Single chain baskets that are showing their age. Replacements for stolen or damaged baskets have been DB-5's.
Some tee pads are no longer level.
The wind can be brutal. If its windy in town it will be worse at this course.
No stores close, you are at the dead end of a long residential road.
Other Thoughts: Wooday is a small suburb of Waco. That being said they have their own small town police force, dont speed or do anything stupid and its all gravy.

This is one of my local courses.
New baskets, longer level tee pads, and signage would easily make this a 3.5.
Add that and change a couple of holes and/or add a few to the current setup and this course has everything needed to be a 4.
